Subject: Yooo..Rinty! (Rintie?)
OK, I cringed when Mr Morgan asked the kid for his address and then showed up at the house but since I didn't see Sid Davis in the credits I figured this had to be about something else.

Come to think of it, I saw this film in school as a kid in the 1950's. Swore right then and there I'd never deliver newspapers. This poor kid doesn't have a life and then stays up 'til 10 PM ruminating over all the stuff that stuffed vest dad of his expects him to do. In my world - same day and age as this...only the poor adopted kid 2 doors down (with remarkably similar looking and acting parents to those in this film) had to do stuff like that.

Anyone notice Mom sure had a glint in her eye when she saw Mr Morgan - but what's to wonder, look what she's married to. Yuck.

Nice dog though - and a pedigree, too.
